For Reading and Meditation: Jeremiah 9:17-24
Let';s review what we have said about God's character. We began by recognizing that in today's Church we seem more interested in knowing about ourselves than in knowing God. The result of being more man-centered than God-centered is increased anxiety, depression, and a hundred...
Bible Verses: Jeremiah 9:17-24Philippians 3:1-11Colossians 1:9-10
For Reading and Meditation: Mark 1:1-13
Those who accept Scripture's teaching concerning God must be prepared to say that He is not only personal, but that He is a plurality of Persons also - a Trinity. The next aspect of God's character we must examine is His triune nature. The doctrine of the Trinity, that God is One yet three separate Persons, is not easy to...

For Reading and Meditation: Genesis 1:1-12
We focus on what without doubt is the most noble and loftiest of themes - the nature and character of God. I have noticed that Christians, generally speaking, seem to be preoccupied with knowing more about themselves rather than knowing more about God. Ask any Christian bookshop manager: "What are the best-selling...

For Reading and Meditation: Colossians 1:1-14
Yesterday we saw that when we make it a goal to hunger and thirst after happiness, we get nowhere, but when we make it our goal to hunger and thirst after righteousness, we get everywhere. Once again Jesus touches on an aspect of good mental health when He teaches us through these words to focus on right goals....
Bible Verses: Colossians 1:1-14Ephesians 5:1-16Romans 6:42 Corinthians 5:7Galatians 5:16
For Reading and Meditation: Colossians 1:15-27
We spend one more day meditating on the text: "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth." Today we ask ourselves: What did Jesus mean by the phrase, "for they will inherit the earth"? It means, so I believe, that when we develop the attitude of meekness, the whole universe is behind us. If, for...

For Reading and Meditation: John 2:12-25
Yesterday we touched on the statement of a psychiatrist, Dr James Fisher, who said that when searching for the positive attitudes which made for good mental health, he came across the Beatitudes and realised that he need search no longer. After nearly fifty years' experience of helping people with mental, emotional and...

For Reading and Meditation: Colossians 1:1-20
Does salvation come up from mankind through striving, helped by the Divine, or does it come down to us from above, through the act of God and our receptivity of that act? Is it an attainment or an obtainment? The answers separate Christianity from all other religions. Non-Christian religions teach that salvation is...
Bible Verses: Colossians 1:1-20Ephesians 1:1-23John 3:311 Corinthians 8:6
Man never finds real joy till he finds the Lord. Then he enters in to what Peter calls "joy unspeakable and full of glory" (1 Peter 1:8).
Anyone can rejoice when circumstances are favorable, but the joy which is the fruit of the Spirit is not the result of earthly circumstances. It springs from our relationship to the Lord and from the precious promises He has given to us. Christ would have to be dethroned before the Church could be finally...
Bible Verses: Galatians 5:221 Peter 1:8Colossians 1:111 Thessalonians 1:6Matthew 5:11-12Acts 5:41Habakkuk 3:17-18
The Almighty Maker of all demands no more of anything he has made than he has made it capable of yielding. Although when each tree yields its appropriate fruits. The plants of righteousness have per-eminence above all the trees of the field; for on their boughs, they bear, wonderful to relate, many varieties of fruits. There is one Spirit; but his fruit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. How beautiful when the trees planted in the courts...
Bible Verses: Colossians 1:10
Everything was created through Him and for Him. (Colossians 1:16 NLT)
The key to everything with God is Life.... We must realize that Christ's ascendancy, supremacy, power, ability and all that goes with Headship, is in terms of His prerogative of Life. He is the Son, vested with Life; He has the right given Him of God to give Life to as many as believe. That is why He is Head....
